Jendras and VonHagel recognized for character trait of citizenship

Lori Ann Jendras and Charles VonHagel, students at Potomac State College (PSC) of West Virginia University (WVU), were recognized for exemplifying the character trait of citizenship.

Each year the College honors selected students by choosing them as CHARACTER COUNTS! students for various character traits.  

Jendras, a general studies major from Romney, W.Va., is a non-traditional student who works part-time and is raising a family in addition to attending college. “Lori Ann never lets her busy schedule get her down,” said one individual who nominated her. Adding, “She always has a smile on her face and works very hard to make her kids’ lives better.”

VonHagel, who graduated from Frankfort High School, is a business administration major from Ft. Ashby, W.Va. He currently owns a lawn-care service and serves as president of the Potomac Highlands Patriots Tea Party. In addition to owning a successful business, VonHagel says that he would like to run for public office some day. He is the son of Todd VonHagel and Cheryl Blackburn.  

Potomac State continues to honor students with the CHARACTER COUNTS! Program, which is an outgrowth of The Joseph & Edna Josephson Institute of Ethics. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to helping people make principled decisions in order that they might live with greater integrity.
